Pecan Pie

This is a easy and delicious recipe for pecan pie. It only has a few ingredients, no mixer needed and perfect for this time of the year. With this recipe I used a pre made crust, for Thanksgiving I made so many pies, that is was just easier, but you can use your favorite pie crust recipe and it will be just perfect.


1 cup corn syrup ( light or dark)
3 beaten eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons melted butter
2 cups whole pecans
1 pre made deep dish pie crust


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a large mixing bowl add the corn syrup, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and melted butter. With a large mixing spoon mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined.
3. Fold in the pecans. Pour the ingredients into the pie crust, place on a cookie sheet and bake for  60-70 minutes or until the center springs back when touched. It should be a little jiggly, but not to much. You will need to cover the edges of the crust with foil after 15 minutes so they do not get to brown.
4. Let pie rest for at least several hours or overnight. Enjoy!!!
